Pope Says Children at U.S. Border Must Be 'Welcomed and Protected'

Pope Francis says migrants around the world are subjected to “racist and xenophobic attitudes” and he wants the tens of thousands of Central American children crossing the border into the United States to be “welcomed and protected.”

In a letter Monday to a Vatican conference in Mexico City on human migration and development, the pontiff said that immigration has become a hallmark of modern society. “Many people forced to emigrate suffer, and often, die tragically,” Francis said, according to a Vatican Radio translation. “Many of their rights are violated. They are obliged to separate from their families and, unfortunately, continue to be the subject of racist and xenophobic attitudes.” The pope drew special attention to the crisis on the U.S. border. He said that not only must the children be welcomed but the world must also promote development in their home countries.

I wondered if the Vatican had that much space? And how could the Pope say such a thing when he turned away many parents begging him to save their children, in South America. (it was many years ago, but this story was part of why people were not happy with him being chosen).

I love how everyone else thinks the U.S. should just take these kids in and pay for them.

He is obviously an Obama plant put in place to liberalize the world for his total takeover.

so are you not agreeing with him?  do you think what he is saying is unchristian like?  What do you think he should have said about helpless children?  Are they not God's children and according to what he believe and what most real Christians believe we help even when it is difficult to do so?  So what side of the fence do you fall on that christian belief?
